Television actor Erica Fernandes has slammed news stories that she has tested positive for Covid-19 and clarified that she is yet to receive her report. She got tested after her Kasautii Zindagii Kay co-star Parth Samthaan tested positive for the virus on Sunday.
In one of her Instagram stories, Erica hit out at the false news stories and said that she will share her report herself, as soon as she gets it. “It was brought to my notice that false claims to my test results have been doing the rounds on social media. Although we are all hoping that it turns out negative, I have yet not received my results,” she wrote.
“My special request to online portals, PLEASE DO NOT spread false news before confirming I will for sure let you guys know the end result when I learn about it. MUCH LOVE. STAY POSITIVE, STAY SAFE,” she added.
